What’s Blooming in the Garden: Lavish lilies

Asiatic lilies (lillium) are blooming in the Sequim Botanical Garden, just north of Carrie Blake Community Park. These hybrid lilies bloom in mid-summer in a variety of color combinations, and are easy to grow in our climate, says representatives of the Sequim Botanical Garden.

They grow from bulbs that do not go dormant. That means the plant will need moisture all year. Since they grow tall, it is best to plant where it is sheltered from the wind, they say.
